Remember that place where I put that thing that time?

The ebullient and perennially gamtastic lorraine has tagged me to list 7 things about myself that are,..something..Hang on..Okay..Apparently I get to choose,so I'm choosing 7 things about stuff.

1)Some years ago,during x-mas time,I called in sick to work when I really wasn't.My neighbor asked me to help him put up his lights around the house as long as I was home,which I did.While we were working I noticed a guy across the street taking my picture.The next morning,there I was on the front page of our local newspaper,decidedly NOT being sick.

2)When I was a freshman in high school,I went to a school play and saw a girl playing the part of the Muse,Terpsichore,that I though was really cute.After the play I asked her to go steady with me and she said yes!We dated for about a week,and the whole time I called her Terpsichore...I never knew what her real name was.

3)I was haulin' ass home from work one day,and got pulled over for speeding.I made up a quick story for the cop that whenever my car reached 45 mph,it would start to shimmy so I had to punch the accelerator to get it to stop.He said that he understood what I was saying,but the speed limit was only 25 mph,..and wrote me a ticket.

4)I was sitting at my desk one,day looking out the window at a fat lady in the parking lot.My co-worker asked me what I was looking at,and I told him,"A fat lady in the parking lot".A minute later she entered our office,went straight to his desk and handed him his lunch...It was his wife.

5)I was tending bar on a very busy Friday night,when a patron came up to order a drink.He was having difficulty even getting the words out so I told him in my best irritated fashion,"You're drunk,I'm NOT serving you any more!!..He left,looking dejected.A few minutes later his therapist came and informed me that he was there with his group of stutterers,trying to help them practice speaking in public situations...Oh.

6)My Grandfather's favorite President was Hindenburg.

7)My then girlfriend,still pissed about an argument we had the night before,hit me in the nose with the wooden heel of her shoe while I was sleeping and broke it..My nose I mean...Her shoe was none-the-worse for wear.

Now I'm going to tag 5 unsuspecting fellow blogophiles to list 7 things of interest,no interest,whimsy,or favorite pet peeves.They are,in alphabetical order;

EDIT:..The new save feature on blogger sux.I've fixed the spacing 4 times,and it still puts shit wherever it wants.

I can't decide which is more odd you not asking her name or "Terpsichore" not correcting you;}

As always wishing you well.

Um...I'm not laughing at you I'm laughing with you.

I always see you at middle childs place, just wanted to see what you write about.

A most entertaining list. It's always nice to know that people other than myself are capable of embarrassing themselves.

At 2:19 PM , Blogger gina said...

Oh btw, #1, 4, and 5 made me laugh so loudly the person in the next office wanted to know what was so funny. I'm supposed to be WORKING, not reading blogs. :)

At 4:21 PM , Blogger Sling said...

yellowdog G.-Oh it's funny...Now. ;)

monica-I'm pretty sure there's a statue of him in front of the old Edsel factory in Pacoima.I'm lookin' forward to your list.

Auld Hat-sorta like training a mule to sit,ain't it.

Hi Jin!-It's okay to laugh AT me too.
Let me know if you figure out what it is I write about. :)

JP-Are you kidding me??..Sometimes I think God keeps me around for comic relief.

gina-So did they laugh when you told them?..Sorry...I'm so needy..
